Pieter Omtzigt launches new party, says he won't be PM | Dutch News - Aug. 20, 2023 |
A social movement I could support ...
A theoretical change in parliament seats …
VVD 20 (-14)
D66 7 (-17)
CDA 4 (-11)
Opposition party Geert Wilders
PVV 10 (-7)
Labour/Green Left stay stable as does the Animal Rights party.
The new Farmers Protest party BBB of Van der Plas would lose more than half of their votes to Pieter Omtzigt, yet polls at 11 seats.

The crisis arose after documents showed that in government formation talks Rutte had discussed a possible new job for a prominent member of parliament who had been critical of his previous Cabinet. Rutte had previously said he did not do so.
“The only thing I can do here is say from the bottom of my heart, my toes, say what happened, what went well, what went wrong, that I never lied,” [🤥🤥🤥] Rutte said in parliament.
Rutte, 54, a conservative who has been in office for more than 10 years, pointed to his record and said he hoped to continue leading the country.
On March 25, talks on forming a new government were abruptly put on hold when one negotiator, rushing out of parliament after learning she had tested positive for the coronavirus, unwittingly revealed a sensitive document to a news photographer.
The document showed negotiators were discussing a position “elsewhere” for popular MP Pieter Omtzigt, a prominent critic of Rutte’s previous Cabinet, though Omtzigt’s Christian Democrats were part of the ruling coalition. The cryptic remark has been interpreted as implying outside parliament or outside the Netherlands.
About Populism, Geert Wilders and the PPV, fishing in the same pond of rightwing voters … Mark Rutte in 2021:
Rutte: “If the PVV becomes the largest, you will get International attention” | WNL - Arch 16, 2021 |
When the PVV becomes the largest party in the Netherlands, “of course you are on the alert internationally”. That is what VVD party leader Mark Rutte says in Good morning Netherlands on NPO 1. "Of course you don't want to wake up the next morning and see that the PVV is the largest party in the Netherlands," said Rutte.
According to the outgoing prime minister, Europe and the United States will look at the Netherlands with suspicion if the PVV wins. “That was also a risk in 2017. At the time I also called it the 'quarter-final against the wrong kind of populism'," says Rutte. “Then we had elected Trump in America, we were the next election and then France and Germany came.”
Populism in itself is not wrong, emphasizes the VVD party leader. “We are all politicians who try to convince as many voters as possible of our vision of the future of the Netherlands,” he says. “The wrong kind of populism is when you scare people, when you don't speak to hope but to fear and when you magnify problems and don't try to solve them.”
Mark Rutte is gone and his successor with Kurdish roots would welcome co-operation with PPV party of Geert Wilders …
